The "Love Yourself" singer continued, talking about how his very humble beginnings as a young 13-year-old in Canada all changed drastically when he became as famous as he did. "... Humility comes with age. You hear these things as a young boy and you actually start believing it, Rationality comes with age and so does your decision making process," he shared. "Everyone did everything for me so I never even learned the fundamentals of responsibility."
"By this point I was 18 with no skills in the real world, with millions of dollars and access to whatever I wanted. This is a very scary concept for anyone. By 20 I made every bad decision you could have thought and went from one of the most loved and adored people in the world to the most ridiculed, judged and hated person in the world!" he continued.
It was at 19 that Justin began doing "pretty heavy drugs" and "abused all of my relationships."
"I Became resentful, disrespectful to women, and angry. I became distant to everyone who loved me, and I was hiding behind, a shell of a person that i had become. I felt like i could never turn it around," he shared. "It's taken me years to bounce back from all of these terrible decisions, fix broken relationships, and change relationship habits. Luckily god blessed me with extraordinary people who love me for me. Now i am navigating the best season of my life 'MARRIAGE' !! Which is an amazing crazy new responsibility. You learn patience, trust, commitment, kindness, humility and all of the things it looks like to be a good man."
"All this to say even when The odds are against you keep fighting," Bieber wrote.
Earlier this year, it was reported that Justin was receiving professional help for his battle with depression.
According to a source at the time, depression was "something he's struggled with for a while."
"Justin never had an authentic childhood due to accelerated fame and struggles with wanting normalcy," the source said. "He felt he needed an emotional tuneup and with the help of his wife, family, and friends, he’s seeking help."
Since then, Justin has kept his fans up to date with how he is doing mentally, which is better. All we can do is continue to support him through this journey.
